Synthesis of 3D Porous Carbon and Its Application in Li–S Batteries

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


It’s feasible to synthesize porous carbon materials from MOFs since MOFs can act as a porous template and carbon source at the same time, which simplifies the traditional process for preparing porous carbon. Moreover, the MOF-derived porous carbons possess extraordinarily high surface area and rich porosity that cannot be achieved from conventional method, contributing to enhanced performance in electrochemical energy storage/conversion, gas adsorption/separation or sensing.
